I have a '71 Trans Am H.O. It needs a rear bumper. There is one on eBay
which came off a 73 Z28. Would anyone know if that is the same bumper the
TA would use? I don't have a cross-referenced parts book. While I'm at it,
Hollander Interchange manual---they show up on Ebay all the time. Same ones the
I'm sure the T/A and Camaro bumpers differ in those years.

My trusty Hollander book lists a reference only for 70 thru 73 Firebirds for
your interchange. Could be any Firebird, though, not just a T/A.
Like Joe said, these books show up on Ebay all the time, well worth the price.
For a 2nd generation Firebird, something like a 46th edition (1970-1980, with
some earlier models) would be best. Hope this helps.
The 71 Camaro bumper is similar but where it wraps around the quarters, it's
a lot shorter that the Pontiac bumper. The 73 Camaro bumper is not only
shorter but it seems to wrap upwards. Search the web for T/A and Camaro
pictures and you can see the difference.
The chrome bumpers are for '70-73 Firebirds only. Camaro bumpers are
Also, the bumper brackets(that mount the bumper to the body) are different for
70-72 and 73. 1973 pushed the bumper away from the body 1/2 inch for the
bumper laws that year.
